15 SEPTEMBER - 7 OCTOBER
CURATED BY JONATHAN FAKINOS
An exhibition of two international artists whose work grapples with personal or collective trauma theories filtered through abstract organic and colourful forms shaping narratives and assigning meaning to the genealogical link to poststructuralism and how a horrifying event can function as “a deathlike break”.
Trauma is fundamentally elusive, defying attempts at representation, articulation, and expression. It surpasses the limitations of language, knowledge, and narrative, which serve as systems of portrayal. This perspective is rooted in specific philosophical beliefs about human experience and our understanding of narratives.
14 JULY - 5 AUGUST
CURATED BY JONATHAN FAKINOS
MISTER PAPERCUT is teaming up with ARTCOLLECTORNEWS & D Contemporary for his first solo show, in London.
Celebrated as a top street artist and contemporary artist to watch. Vices speaks to both the artists identity as well as the intentional playful disguise of his art, created as a misdirection from the more serious topics the work explores. Cutting & sticking their way through the layers of life, Mister Papercut is exploring the simplification and exaggeration of the human form, and our relationship to the world around us, through a range of emotional conditions and situations. From the visible to the invisible, elation to depression, and from life to death.

D Contemporary is pleased to present Adjacent Colours, a group show featuring paintings and sculptures from five artists graduating this year.
By bringing together five post-graduate artists, Adjacent Colours aims to create a constructive interaction of colour and form while shaping a supportive network for emerging artists on their first steps at the London art scene. In keeping with our mission to promote future talents, Adjacent Colours is a part of our annual exhibition program featuring the work of the UK's most promising emerging artists. With subtle allusions to memories and the seductiveness of colour, the artists are presenting their thematics through their own unique style, narrative, and lyricism.
18 APRIL - 6 MAY
CURATED BY RAFFAELLA MATRONE
For D Contemporary, curator Raffaella Matrone will present a selection of Eva Chiara Trevisan’s pre-existent works, alongside several newly produced ones. The exhibition aims to be the first London and UK showcase of the artist. Trevisan is currently working on the challenge of removing the support from paint, by making it become the sole protagonist of the work, thanks to the study of an extreme use of colour. The purpose of disengaging from the technicality of the support is to turn the colour itself into the support of the work.
11 APRIL - 16 APRIL

28 FEBRUARY - 25 MARCH
ABIGAIL NORRIS | CELIA MORA | SADIE LEE | ELIZABETH DIMITROFF
In celebration of International Women's Day, the group exhibition pursues the idea of the human body as a metaphor for the transcendent female representation in art through sexuality, gender, and the aging body. Surfacing the complexities of the ever-evolving relationship between body and identity, a series of intimate portraits encourages us to embrace ourselves and discuss taboos. Partners, achievers, characters, and allegorical beings engage in ambiguous posing, with unladylike stares challenging stereotypes while creating expectations for an empowered world based on equality.
26 JANUARY-25 FEBRUARY
A CONCIOUSNESS HARNESSED TO FLESH
ADAM BOYD | IRENA POSNER | PIA ORTUNO | PRESLAV KOSTOV
Notes collected into a very truthful picture coming from our inner self completing a worldview that reflects the nowness. Narratives of time and archetypes reflected on harrowing futurism, embedded in the present, harnessing a fraction of the makers mind to reveal what lies beneath. Transforming materiality, bodies becoming one with abyssal voids, instilling energy, searching for an environment of non-possession.

IN YOUR EYES
EUNJUNG SEO FELEPPA
D Contemporary is proud to present ‘In your Eyes’ Eunjung Seo Feleppa’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Taking a more ritualistic, introspective approach, Eunjung’s portraits reveal an unmistakably nostalgic contemplation. Building a visual library from familiar faces and people seen in family photography albums, films and even strangers’ pictures found online, the artist connects with those faces through the collective unconscious. She creates a connection to our shared experience through the gaze. The eyes are searching for something, waiting for someone, searching for meaning; missing people, places, looking directly at you, appreciating togetherness in the moment; looking at the sky, enduring sadness, planning tomorrow.
28NOVEMBER - 17 DECEMBER 2022
UNCODED: CRAFTING INTELLIGENCE
A group exhibition with Ami Clarke, Jiang Feng, John Rodovitis, Kyriakos Bournas, Selina Naouma and Tom White. The exhibition brings together a group of London based and international artists presenting paintings developed by word commands and sculptures that cross the boundaries of aesthetics, stepping into the human needs of today’s world. Reconsidering whether we can accept or exclude the quantification of crafts and redefine creativity through algorithmic systems, AI provides a novel perspective on old questions enabling new modes of artistic expression.
11 SEPTEMBER - 5 NOVEMBER 2022

their work and its context.
